The Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch offers views of the gorgeous mountains, original 1930s architecture, and local and seasonal cuisine (a specialty there). Your guests can stay in private cabins complete with fireplaces, stone showers or claw-foot bathtubs, and crisp linens.
The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is a cultural landmark offering two romantic, interconnecting courtyards featuring landscaping and fountains. Here, guests enjoy the beautiful Santa Barbara weather during an alfresco cocktail hour in the lower courtyard.
Cornerstone Sonoma is a mix of shops, wineries, and a cafe just south of Napa and Sonoma wine countries. It offers four distinct reception options: A wedding garden, garden barn (shown here), vineyard lawn, and vineyard house, which is a private residence.

The name might be ironic, but the space is anything but: The Smog Shoppe is an eco-friendly (no really -- it's a platinum-certified LEED building) venue that's eclectic through and through. It rocks vintage furnishings and is covered in desert plants.
If, like many little girls, you used to be obsessed with horses, take your trot down the aisle at Brookside Equestrian Center. Afterward, throw your bash under the stars on a grassy lawn dotted by trees (shown here). They also have a covered arena, barn, and gazebo.
